If You Haven’t Found Your Passion, Look Again

9 Comments

Many people on the ascension path are concerned that they don’t have a single passion or purpose that they could sink their teeth into. They may feel bored and want to do something creative. They look around sometimes and see others deeply immersed in professions or avocations and they wonder why they themselves can’t seem to find that singular passion. In fact when they look at their life they may never have had a single driving passion.

In my own life as I reflect, I really did not have any single passion other than wanting to express through whatever medium may have been available. I enjoyed art for many years, creating drawings, paintings and sculptures. But it wasn’t an everyday passion. I majored in art in college and I obtained a master of arts degree in graduate school. But quite honestly, I never really followed it as a profession or a career. Overall I followed whatever felt interesting in the moment, even at one time opening up an art supply and custom framing store with my husband. (now ex husband, who still runs the business).  I worked at it for ten years, and it was quite successful, but even there I did not feel a driving passion for the work.  I felt then a need to move on from that business and that husband.  For quite a long time I thought I lacked something because I did not have that drive and dedication.   I thought, maybe I am not taking myself seriously enough, maybe I just don’t believe in myself enough, and all kinds of other justifications for not following unwaveringly one creative path.

It took me quite a long time but I began to realize that there was absolutely nothing wrong with any of that. Many of us came into this lifetime with a passion to awaken. And, it really does not matter what we do or not do. We do not have to build careers or avocations if we do not feel that drive. Because, we are actually already doing our passion. Of course society for the most part does not recognize that we are doing that, so we may get criticism.  We may be told we are lazy, or unambitious, or are spreading ourselves in too many directions.  That we lack focus.

I had the credentials if I wanted to teach art on a university or college level. But I really did not, after all that education, want to pursue that path. I ended up taking odd jobs here and there that had really nothing to do with my creativity. But, regardless of the relationships I found myself in, or the jobs I worked at to earn money, I always found the time and resources to be creative if the desire was strong enough.

So if any of you ever feel that perhaps you are not finding that one thing that’s going to give you that joy, and that because you can’t find that one thing, there’s something wrong with you, there isn’t. You are just where you need to be. If you feel like developing a career or teaching what you have learned about ascension, or writing or anything of that nature then of course pursue it. But if you find yourself just wanting to relax in life, and just do whatever feels good in the moment, you have already found your sweet spot, you just don’t realize it.

So many of us on the leading edge of ascension are recognizing that we are fulfilling our passion. And that passion is to love ourselves unconditionally, to invite our spirit, our soul into our bodies and our lives, and to enjoy this life. We are here to release old stuck energies, to transform ourselves from the inside out, and to share that experience as much as we enjoy sharing it, with others of like mind.

If that’s not a passion then what is?

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Six years later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. Haha Maria I had to laugh a bit when I realised the topic of this article, because before I went to your page I openend one of my stories I wrote (to be made into film) and read them again and actually quite liked it. You as a fellow creative might know the feeling of being sick of some of your work if you are exposed to it on a daily basis. But when it’s out of your sight for a while you actually appreciate it again. Well, I went to open up that script because I again read about a fellow filmmaker on facebook (a newcomer) whose film was showed at a film festival and a little wave of frustration or jealousy flooded me. I wanted to see how I feel about my work again and tried to figure out why I didn’t try harder to get funding and get this script realised. After I realised that I do like my stuff I then felt frustrated that I still don’t have the will to put some effort into getting funding for the production of that film. And then I went to open up your page and your latest article actually tackles that issue. Talk about synchronicity. I still wonder though if I ever will have a fullfiling career or job, as it would be nice to be financially independent, but on the other hand I do enjoy the relaxation as well. A part of me still likes to see my ideas put onto the big screen, so maybe this is after all my path, just it is not the right time for it now?
    Anyways, thank you again for your brilliant article. I can relate to it 100 per cent. I’ve been accused of not being focused and being too fickle, because I had so many interests that just didn’t last for a long time, because then I found a new interest and followed that one and so one.
    Have a great day
    Much love

    • Wow amazing! And I relate to what you are saying, and felt often that my messages in the form of art were ahead of their time as well. And yes the notion of pursuing a passion and creating financial abundance as a result of our passions sounds great. But I have experienced firsthand and have seen in others that as they stay in the space of doing what they love and feeling fulfilled, money comes in but not necessarily directly from those passions. In other words, trusting that our soul knows how to create that abundance for us. In this new energy it seems that we are letting go of old programs that kept us from trusting our soul and that kept us trying to make things happen from our human perspective of lack and not feeling fulfilled.

      I look forward to people like you creating films that I can relate to because honestly I grow bored of what’s out there….same old tired duality thinking….

      • I wholeheartedly agree! I also feel bored of the films that come out now (and most that are being shown on TV) and it’s been 8 years since I’ve been to the cinema. I have no real interest in seeing most films to be honest and it is as you say: it’s the same old duality crap. There is really nothing completely new and I think this may also be the reason why I haven’t followed through with my scripts: the stories are interesting but also still dualistic; maybe a part of me wants to come up with something that reflects my being at the moment; maybe when I’m full in the moment (or at least closer) my sould will dictate me a story that reflects that situation which consequently will inspire and help people when they watch it?. A lady once told me (she was an aura reader) that I will be succesful with my creative things if they come from the soul. It seemed like quite a vague statement at that time (that was years ago) but it does make sense. Thank you again Maria for opening my eyes on this topic. You brilliant woman!

      • Kat
        This is so interesting, because I have had a fantasy about working with independent filmmakers who want to incorporate my songs in their new consciousness films. It’s not easy when we are so isolated from others of like mind to continue that momentum of inspiration….but as you say, if it is from our soul, the right connections will ‘appear.’

  2. I have a constant battle to define my life’s passion. I have many sub-passions. But I discovered my true passion is music. I can relate a piece of music to everywhere I have been and everywhere I want to be.

    • Peter
      I can relate to your passion for music for it is one of the most sensual and etheric experiences a human can have. I find myself going back to it, to creating and expressing through song although it’s not as strong a passion as it had been earlier. But it definitely connects us to spirit by bypassing all the mental stuff.

  3. Maria, that does sound really cool. And it makes sense.We both have these talents, why not use them to inspire and help people on a bigger scale (well you are already doing it 😉 )
    Funny thing is, because thinking about a story and how it evolves is both a mental and inspirational thing (with inspirational I mean when I cant think of a good plot twist for example I keep still and the solution just pops into my head; my writing is based on a mixture of thinking and non thinking :D). But as this new thing – the non duality – is still such an alien concept (for the mind at least) I have no idea how to go about it. I think it is a matter of evolving, I’m sure the new, non duality stories will just pour out of me when the time is right.

  4. A thought I had today. The German word for passion is Leidenschaft. The word itself includes suffering (Leiden=suffering) . And if you think about it, it does in English, too. The passion of Christ = the suffering of Christ. And how often have heard that artist (mostly writers) speak of their passion as a curse sometimes, because something forces them to write. Doesn’t sound that pleasant to me. So maybe it’s not that bad, that we are passionless (= without suffering) at the moment?

  5. Wow interesting! Maybe the word joy is now more appropriate then. As we let go of the need to suffer and make life so difficult we discover the joy of connecting to life through our very soul. Thanks for those insights.💜
